About Us

Poudre Valley Health System (PVHS) is a locally owned, private, not-for profit organization with a strong vision: to provide world-class health care.

PVHS, based in northern Colorado since 1925, provides evidence-based health care and wellness services and products in Colorado, Nebraska and Wyoming. PVHS' service area covers more than 50,000 square miles.

PVHS is a regional medical hub that includes Poudre Valley Hospital, Medical Center of the Rockies, Mountain Crest Behavioral Healthcare Center, Poudre Valley Medical Group, and dozens of associated clinics and outpatient services.

The organization's mission is to be an integrated, independent, non-profit organization providing innovative, comprehensive care of the highest quality while exceeding expectations of the communities we serve.


PVHS evaluates and uses new technologies that benefit patients and families. We study and improve the way we provide tests and treatments. We work closely with physicians to evaluate the care we offered and what worked, what didn't, and why.

We also constantly work to improve our customer service -- that's a major focus for us, and our senior managers and department directors. Click an award to see details.
